Weekend Adventures

So yesterday we got a call from John's parents saying they were on the way to the hospital. Malachi had a seizure for a couple of minutes and afterward was lethargic/sleeping for a bit. After that he woke up and cried, he was pretty scared. The EMT's, ambulance, and police were there in mere minutes (2-5), and Malachi went in the ambulance with Grandma to the hospital and Grandpa followed in the car.

He was checked out in the ER (by a Christian Dr. - Thank you Lord!). Blood work and CT Scan were normal. He was sent home from the hospital and we asked Rick and Mickey to bring him home today. Ever since he went home from the hospital he's been fine. Today he's been running around playing outside, and tonight he was running around the gym at our church while we were at a church "family dinner." He was climbing the bleachers in the gym and acting like a normal 3 1/2 year old.

The Dr. at the ER said we should take him to a Pediatric Neurologist and have an MRI done. Hopefully we can have that done as soon as possible. I'd like to be able to get in on Wednesday. It's too bad that it's a holiday on Monday, I'd like to be in earlier than that.

On a less serious note, John seems to have been poisoned by a plant. His legs have developed red, itchy spots that get pretty big and open up/scab over pretty quickly. The bumps and itchiness has spread to his arms, but he's avoiding scrathing those to make sure they don't open up. He just bought some Calahist Lotion tonight and it really helped with his dad's case, so we're hoping that it'll help with his.

Mickey's staying over tonight through Wednesday to help take care of Malachi so that my friend and I can organize the apartment. I hope that we can get a lot of work done.

Have a great week everyone!
